The inner layer of your skin supports the outer layer, providing flexibility, integrity, and containing the blood vessels that nourish your skin. Nearly 75% of the weight of the inner layer consists of collagen, a connective tissue responsible for strength and resilience.
Over time, your skin naturally produces less collagen. Exposure to sunlight and other stressors such as poor nutrition also damage collagen and elastin; the protein the boosts elasticity. As a result, skin loosens and wrinkles develop.
The supportive tissues in your skin can be stimulated using heat from specially designed medical devices. When existing collagen is heated, the protein contracts, producing an immediate tightening of your skin. This tightening effect is short-lived, but heat therapy has another important impact – it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
As new collagen and elastin form, your skin becomes tighter and better toned. In addition to tightening, fine lines and wrinkles diminish, and blood circulation in the treated area improves, which rejuvenates your skin.*
Skin tightening procedures are comfortable and generally don’t require downtime. They’re performed using ultrasound, radiofrequency, or laser energy, which safely passes through your upper layer of skin to heat deeper layers.
CoolSculpting is the name of an innovative medical device that’s best-known for eliminating areas of fat that persist in spite of diet and exercise. You can contour almost any area of your body using CoolSculpting, including your abdomen, arms, thighs, back, and submental fat under your chin and on your neck.
The device relies on controlled cooling to freeze fat cells, so the cells die and breakdown. The cellular waste is naturally eliminated by your body, so the loss of fat is permanent – as long as you don’t gain weight.
CoolSculpting offers another benefit – it helps tighten skin in the treated area. Health experts believe that cold-based treatments tighten skin using the same mechanism as heat-based therapies – by stimulating collagen production.
